GfreeCookbook Club – What to Expect or, the “Devils in the Details”
Quick details to know...
In a Nutshell...
What the GfreeCookbook Club Is
The GfreeCookbook Club is a free, monthly virtual gathering of home cooks for a book and recipe talk to share and discuss popular cookbooks and wellness selections offering gluten-free recipes. Everyone is encouraged to make a dish from each month’s book choice, then connect in the virtual Show & Tell to talk about the book. Discussing what they made, posting questions, and sharing their triumphs and sometimes messy, imperfect cooking journeys. The club membership and the monthly event are free to attend for everyone in the club, but we need members to RSVP (sign up for each event) to get the ZOOM invite and join the discussion during the live gathering.
For even more details, be sure to check out this page for all of the club specifics.
About the reading plan and...
The “Whole Book” Digital File Reading Schedule (Email)
About a week before the new book month starts, when you RSVP or buy a ticket to guarantee your spot to “Show & Tell” (there’s ten available), you’ll get the “Whole Book” Digital File Reading Schedule email.
The email outlines a little about the monthly book, links to website posts about it. And some highlights from the selection we’re tackling – all pulled apart along with thought-stirring ideas for jumping into the TASTIEST and the most SCRUMPTIOUS gluten-free recipes.
You’ll also get a few tips to support you in navigating the terrain. Such as applying everything you’ll take away from reading and cooking from the book, learning from the Facebook Group, and living your best Gfree life along the way.
The reading schedule outlines 5-10 pages a day, about 3-6 recipes – but you don’t have to read everything. So feel free to skip around and to read only what interests you the most.
Start the new book right away, or wait until the month starts.
If you’re not sure where to begin, we recommend starting your journey by reading through the entire introduction as well as 15 headnotes and recipes and then trying to cook at least three recipes.
About the “Whole Book” Reading Schedule
If you want to read the entire book front to back, follow our timeline as your schedule permits. However, since there’s always some lead time after the book announcement and at least a week minimum before the first post in the group, you might want to get started by reading ahead. If you do, you can share your thoughts about the cookbook in the comment box attached to each book’s blog post. Or, if you are super excited to start posting in the Facebook Group right away, we would love for you to join the GfreeCookbook Club to do it!
If you can’t match the reading schedule or attend the monthly club meetings, don’t worry! The blog posts and their comment boxes are on each post page to address the book and recipes when you get to them.
Save it, Print it, Fill it in…
Site subscribers and club members may feel free to print off the monthly book schedule (sent in the email) or download it to their computer (from the website). So, save it, type, and fill it in as you go. If you access the file from the website, you will first need to log in and then get it HERE (under the “Cookbook Club” tab). And, of course, as was mentioned above, when you’re a club member, you will receive an email to your inbox when the file is available.
